Though I have driven past here many times since it opened I had no idea what was hidden behind the fence so hadn't been particularly tempted to try it. A friend and I called for an impromptu coffee on a scorching hot Sunday afternoon in July. I was amazed when we drove in that there were so many cars parked as the car park can not be fully seen from the road. We sat at one of the few vacant bistro tables outside and had coffee. We didn't order food as we'd already eaten but we saw diners being served with what appeared to be fresh, colourful food with lots of interesting salads and pasta dishes. Though often not synonymous with old stone buildings the interior is bright and airy and the decor a mix of old and new. Plants are very reasonably priced and there is a lovely quirky little shop in what would have been an outbuilding that sells all sorts of goods for the home and garden, great for gift ideas. We met some friends from the local village who had called for an ice cream at The Parlour, they told us it is now a regular haunt for them and that it is always busy even on cooler days. I'm not sure how I hadn't heard how fantastic this place is, since I've been I've heard lots of good reports about it, next time we'll go for lunch...and maybe even an ice cream.
